    1. A real-world example of this would be an e-commerce site that allows users to “hold” items in their cart while they’re using the site or for the duration of a session. In this scenario, the technical cookies are both necessary for the functioning of the purchasing service and are explicitly requested by the user when they indicate that they would like to add the item to the cart. Do note, however, that these session-based technical cookies are not tracking cookies.

      I'm not sure I agree with this:

      [the technical cookies] are explicitly requested by the user when they indicate that they would like to add the item to the cart.

      The only thing they requested was that the item be held in a cart for them. They didn't explicitly request that cookies be used to store information about items in the cart. They most likely don't understand all of the options for how to store data like this, and certainly wouldn't know or expect specifically that cookies be used for this.

      In fact, localStorage could be used instead. If it's a single-page app, then even that would be necessary; it could all be kept in page-local variables until they checked out (all on the same page); such that reloading the page would cause the cart data held in those variables to be lost.

    1. How "Invisible Captcha" Works Invisible Captcha, or reCAPTCHA, requires end-users to click a button that says "I'm not a robot" and Google can determine whether to prompt the user with additional question (i.e. select pictures that best describe X) to verify if that person is in fact not a robot.

      That's not accurate. Invisible Captcha is only one kind of reCAPTCHA. The terms are not simply interchangeable, as is implied here.

      From https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create, we can see 2 main reCAPTCHA types:

      • reCAPTCHA v3 - Verify requests with a score
      • reCAPTCHA v2 - Verify requests with a challenge

      And these subtypes for reCAPTCHA v2:

      • "I'm not a robot" Checkbox - Validate requests with the "I'm not a robot" checkbox
      • Invisible reCAPTCHA badge - Validate requests in the background
      • reCAPTCHA Android - Validate requests in your android app
    2. a complete snapshot of the user's browser window at that moment in time will be captured, pixel by pixel.

      Is this even technically possible?

      If it were:

      • how are they not disclosing this better, since it seems like a privacy concern since there could be any amount of private data in that form, that would what, get sent to Google??
      • wouldn't that be a lot of pixels (a lot of data to upload), which would take a lot of time to upload, especially at high screen resolutions?
    3. an additional reCAPTCHA-specific cookie will be added to the user's browser

      It appears to actually set a non-reCAPTCHA-specific cookie:

    1. In the long run, it probably makes no difference how badly we overshoot two degrees

      Potential interactions among the tipping elements of the Earth system could generate tipping cascades. The far we stay below the 2ºC, the less likely it will be the occurrence of tipping cascades.

    1. the rate of global sea-level rise 70 years ago was as large as what we observe today—about one foot per century

      The rate of sea level rise has actually quadrupled since preindustrial times: the trend was .8 mm/yr from 1870 to 1924, 1.9 mm/yr from 1925 to 1992, and 3.2 mm/yr from 1993 to 2014. sea level rise http://www.columbia.edu/~mhs119/SeaLevel/

    1. the food ban list supported by Republicans bans organic foods and a great many products that have nutritional value.

      The author confuses the WIC program list with this bill. This bill only prevents you from buying shellfish with SNAP benefits, and prevents more than a third being spent on unapproved foods.

    2. The list of “disallowed” foods, which you can view here, also includes the following

      This list is for the WIC program, which is different from the SNAP program that the bill is about.

    3. The legislation specifically bans poor people from buying any kind of shellfish, including lobster, shrimp, and crab.

      This is incorrect. The bill prevents SNAP benefits being used to buy shellfish, but doesn't ban poor people from buying shellfish outright.

    4. Assembly Bill 177 seeks to ban people who rely on food stamps to survive on a daily basis from buying a huge list of products

      This is incorrect for the same reasons given in the above annotation.

    5. a bill that would ban them from eating a multitude of foods

      This is incorrect. The bill does not ban people from eating any foods. It bans people from buying shellfish with SNAP benefits. It also bans people from spending more than a third of their SNAP benefits on unapproved foods.

    6. Wisconsin GOP Passes Bill Banning Poor People From Buying Shellfish, Potatoes And Ketchup

      This headline is inaccurate. The bill prevents SNAP benefits from being used to buy shellfish, but people are still allowed to buy shellfish with non-SNAP money. The bill also prevents people from using more than a third of their SNAP benefits on food that's not on an approved list, but potatoes are on that list, so people can spend all their benefits on potatoes if they want. Ketchup is unapproved, so people can spend only a third of their SNAP benefits on ketchup.
